    So is this an award that they actually give out every year or is it something that they have created for Mike? Either way it's a great thing to be recognised.

    So what is the criteria for this award? I thought that it was recognition for being a leader in terms of recovery from addiction but now I'm confused.

    They couldn't have made a better choice. Hoping a webcast and/or video of this surfaces. That is a great lineup.
